Gonzalez Named Atlantic East Defensive Player of the Week

LANCASTER, Pa. - The Atlantic East Conference announced the Men's Soccer weekly awards on Tuesday, naming Marywood's Ryan Raffino the offensive player of the week and Marymount's Axel Gonzalez the defensive player of the week.

The junior stepped up to lead the back line against Waynesburg with All-Conference defender and team captain Carlos Varona missing the contest due to injury. Gonzalez held the opposition to five shots, none of which were on target, along with scoring a goal from a corner kick at the other end.

The Saints play Eastern Mennonite on the road this Saturday as a part of the Fall Classic, and will return home for Senior Day/Staff Appreciation Night against Washington Adventist on September 14th.
